They handle the duties of an 'in-house' accountant, but work remotely and on a part-time basis.


In summary they can:

  • use cloud technology to maintain accurate, real-time financial data

  • pull together regular management accounts and present them with financial insights

  • monitor the financial health and well-being of the business

  • highlight areas of concern

  • assist in forecasting - cashflow or budgeting, for example  

Specific duties will vary depending on the client's needs, and can be chosen from the 'menu' of services below.

Any online software system can be worked with remotely, for example, Xero, Sage Online, however within the Practice a combination of Quickbooks Online and Receipt Bank is used successfully and this would be the preferred choice.
